Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

We are back with another poem today for the Two Spoiled Cats, Teddy and Angel Sammy’s, weekly poetry challenge. The inspiration photo they provided along with my poem are below. If you look closely at the photo, you may notice I tampered with it slightly. I have my fingers crossed Teddy and Angel Sammy won’t mind too much.



Cats & Fairies

Here’s another secret and magical place,
Where fairies Iike to romp and sing all day.
They are hiding now, as they know
Someone is lurking and might steal their glow.
Humans are not often welcome here,
But cats can drop by if they stay clear
And sit quietly except for soft purrs,
Which even fairies find relaxing and a cure
For the stressful lives they often lead,
Spending hours hiding so not to be seen.
Fairies and cats always go hand in paw,
As cats protect their tiny friends tooth and claw.
If you find your cat in a sunpuddle, softly purring,
They may be guarding their friends but not interfering.
Remember to always walk quietly through this magical place,
So the hidden fairies not to frighten or displace.

Thankful Thursday

We remain thankful that, as far as we know, all our family and friends remain virus free. As states reopen, please do not become complacent. Continue to follow CDC guidelines and stay safe. Each of you is important to us.

We received a “Right Guesser” badge from Two Spoiled Cats’ Tuesday Teaser. We weren’t first to guess correctly, but that’s okay.


Another thankful: We haven’t floated away. Nearly six inches (as of Wednesday night) of rain has fallen in the past couple of days. We are over the normal amount of rainfall for this time of year by 15 inches. It is currently raining heavily and more rain is in the forecast for the next week.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful and then click on the badge below to go to Brian’s Home blog to add the link to your post.

See you all tomorrow for one of Kitties Blue favorite holidays: International Box Day.

That is a very special and sweet poem! Love the ‘tampering’, MOL!

Yikes, send some rain our way, its hot and very dry here, the grass is all brown and crunchy in some places in our yard. The watering cans are busy, very busy each morning. In May we had too much rain, now we are parched. Go figure. Sorry you are so soggy…

So far we here are all virus free, even though petcretary works in a nursing home…it has not invaded that facility, thankfully. We are all getting ‘tested’ next week, just to be sure, staff and residents alike.

We totally think the “addition” to the photo is perfect – I even thought that spot would be a wonderful place to curl up and snooze in the shade! Mom and I sure do like your poem for the photo – it’s magical and that’s EXACTLY what this photo says to us – MAGIC. Thanks for joining in our poetry day every week….we look forward to your super poems!

Love, Teddy
